Welcome to The Hesitant Adventurer! I'm Emma, an anxious traveller seeking an adventurous life.
The Hesitant Adventurer documents my world travels and tries to tackle the issues surrounding anxiety, body positivity, and (of course) travel.
This blog was born out of my love for travel and a year+ spent travelling full time, housesitting, dogsitting, and exploring the world with my partner. Burnout struck us both after about a year and a half, living out of carry-on luggage, never having a place of our own, and missing friends and a sense of community. We itched to have some normalcy and stability once more.
After six months of house and pet sitting in the UK in 2019, we made the decision to move to London (a lifelong dream of mine). My tropic-loving spouse fell in love with London's history, food scene, and so much more.
In February 2020, we made the move to England and are now based in SW London.
